lower abdomen pain, first came a few years ago, it was an indescribable feeling of being somewhere where i was truly accepted, as is. no expectations, no judgements
-- just this amazing warmth and friendship that felt like family. it is--it's like my home awayfrom home & i look forward to it every year! and it's just something you have to experiencein person... sometime, whenever you can. maybe thisyear, i hope? because it's just so wonderful. and... please come no matter how sick you are, no matter how hard you think it's gonna be. it won't be, i promise you... because we're all there together, we're
all going through the same thing and there's even a wellness room if you need to lay down or sit down in a different way, away from the table &chairs. you can stretch, you can lay on a
mat on the floor. bring things if you need, really. be as comfortable as you canbecause this is our conference and i really hope you'll come and i really hope to meet you there. come to the women in pain conference because it's our conference. thank you.
